Still Seeing Fireworks!

 Matt and I decided early on that while we love tradition, the typical wedding gifts of paper, silver, clocks, etc just isn't for us. We have decided our own tradition of a mini get~away, just the two of us is more our style. This year we returned to Disneyland!

Our trip back to Disneyland was a blast, we dined at Goofey's Kitchen to kick it off began our days early and stayed nearly till closing every night. We enjoyed Fantasmic, Nightastic, Electric Parade, Fireworks, many walks through New Orleans (my favorite part of Disney) and rode our favorite rides over and over together. One of my favorite hi-lights was eating at a restaurant I can remember admiring as a child for the first time. It is called the Blue Bayou. Matt made it happen for our anniversary dinner, we ate by candlelight near the railing looking over the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. The food was delicious, my date was amazing, we shared creme brulee for dessert and it was such a romantic way to celebrate our love for each other.
I thought it would be fun for each of us to contribute to this post so I put Matt on the spot...

Matt's Thoughts ~ It's been a year now and I still get misty eyed when I think back to the day I first saw her beautiful eyes light up when she smiled. There have been a lot of smiles, some tears, and perfectly timed hugs and kisses along the way and the fireworks still remain bursting big and bright.

Me again ~ Isn't he awesome?! I once read "Dance with God, he'll let the perfect man cut in." It is so true, Matt is an answer to many prayers and as our love grows together, I find myself growing closer and deeper in my walk of faith. Matt is kind, loving, spiritual, fun, honest, and so patient with me, I still can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together, one year at a time!
